Mountain biker on Thumb Butte trail


Nearly 450 miles of scenic trails are open to hikers, bikers, and horse riders on the Prescott National Forest.  The forest also contains one National Recreation Trail (Granite Mountain Trail) and one National Historic Study Trail (General Crook Trail).  Central Arizona's mild climate allows most trails to be enjoyed year-round.

Report Trail Conditions: Help us manage trails for your safety and enjoyment by reporting your experience to the Prescott Trails Safety Coalition.
